I'm a new driver, and I'm worried about rear visibility. So I'm thinking of installing a backup camera system in the Aztek that I'm about to get. Any recommendation for a particular model? I'm thinking about one of the wireless ones so I won't have to run wires through the car.

I already have a GPS, so I guess I'll have two monitors on top of the dash. I hope I'll be able to find good placement for them.

Thanks!

I'd suggest a wired as opposed to a wireless set up. I had a wireless and it was ok but was prone to static on the screen, I've also seen a portable gps unit that also functions as a back up cam monitor. In my case, I have an in dash gps that replaced my factory stereo. It has the option to wire in a back up cam.

One draw back with wireless you also have to keep in mind how long the charge will last before *poof* everything stops and you need to recharge it.

I'd say to go with a wired unit if you are only going to use it only the Aztek. If you think you may move it from car to car then wireless would be the way to go.

I have a wireless with a power cord mounted at the top of my interior facing out the acck window- I put it there to help with blind spots rather than see to reverse. I hate the wireless connection- it has static. Sometimes it is clear, but most of the time it does not hvae a good signal. You cannot blame the signal being blocked by the body panels- it is inside the vehicle.
